Here’s a fun mosaic project with LEGO® bricks that is perfect for the Christmas break! Build and decorate a LEGO® tree. The kids can decorate and re-decorate it. The bricks on ours have been rearranged several times!
We have a whole collection of LEGO® Christmas projects to build, so check that out if you’re looking for more ideas.
This activity is super easy and doesn’t really require any explanation! I’ll show you how we made the cute LEGO® board in a minute, though. I’m planning to use it as a birthday sign for Jonathan’s 6th birthday in two weeks. I can spell Happy Birthday, Jonathan in bricks and I think it will be so cute!
Obviously, if you don’t want to create the LEGO® board, a plain base plate will work just for building a Christmas tree.
Gather little bricks for ornaments. We found all sorts of fun bricks to use!
How to make a LEGO® easel:
Add an easel, and this turns into quite a festive decoration!
I think we’ll be using this LEGO® easel for all kinds of things (like the birthday sign I mentioned above).
Here’s what I used:

The easel was $7.99 in the painting section at Hobby Lobby. I also bought an 11″ x 17″ framed cork board at Hobby Lobby. We attached two peel and stick baseplates to the back side of the cork board. These are not LEGO® brand, but they are completely compatible with LEGO® bricks. I am always skeptical of other brands, but these are well made and hold the bricks very securely.
Before attaching the peel and stick baseplates, I decided to paint the frame of the cork board red. It really looks much more awesome with the red frame.
We had to cut the baseplates to fit the cork board exactly, but it was not difficult with a utility knife. Be sure to follow the instructions that come with the baseplates.
Isn’t this fun?
